Recommended Reading: All Eyes on Inbee

There have been some great pieces on Inbee Park out there in recent days, most notably from Happy Fan of Seoul Sisters.com, Emily Kay at SBNation, Bill Rand at Eye on the Tour, and Les Bailey at Fansided.  What seems not to be common knowledge is how Inbee learned how to contend and how to win on the JLPGA (something I mentioned yesterday and went into more detail on back in December 2010 and March 2011).  I questioned her strategy back in October 2010, but the 3 years she played more than 10 events in Japan (14 in 2010, 14 in 2011, 11 in 2012) garnered her 4 golds, 10 silvers, 16 top 5s, 21 top 10s, and 30 top 20s.  It's true that she's taken it to an entirely new level in the last calendar year, but without the experience and confidence gained in Japan, I wonder if Inbee would be where she is today:  looking to make it 3 wins and 3 majors in a row!
